  • Standing on the backs of angels
    Destined to create
    Mounting the attack
    While heroes carry your weight

    We spiral towards disaster
    Survival fading faster

    Riding out the wave
    Content to feed off the machine
    Bleeding us to death
    The new American dream

    You're blinded by your hunger
    Beware your days are numbered

    Tears fall from the shameless
    Shelter me, guide me to the edge of the water
    Selfless are the righteous
    Burden me, lead me like a lamb to the slaughter
    Blurring lines drawn in between
    What is right and what is wrong
    Victims on the radar string us along

    We're on to your agenda
    The dead end road to nowhere

    Tears fall from the shameless
    Shelter me, guide me to the edge of the water
    Selfless are the righteous
    Burden me, lead me like a lamb to the slaughter

    Tears fall from the shameless
    Shelter me, guide me to the edge of the water
    Selfless are the righteous
    Burden me, lead me like a lamb to the slaughter
    Selfless are the righteous
    Burden me, lead me like a lamb to the slaughter Writer/s: JOHN MYUNG, JOHN PETRUCCI, JOHN RO MYUNG, JORDAN CHARLES RUDESS, JORDAN RUDESS
